On Tuesday, 21 May 2019, there will be a rousing MAE WEST event in London, England.

• • This month Women and Cocaine salutes the most scandalous woman of all time. She was an actress, playwright, screenwriter, and sex symbol, famous for her bawdy double entendres, The month of May belongs to Mae West as we screen her classic ‘I’m No Angel’ from 1933.

• • Tell them you heard about it on The Mae West Blog.
• • On Monday, 21 May 1973 in Variety • •
• • "Sex Drive" • •
• • An item appeared in Variety on Monday, 21 May 1973.  Mae West mentioned she was writing a new book "Sex Drive," that would include real names and be largely autobiographical.
• • Either Mae couldn't find a publisher in 1973 or the 80-year-old icon was giving that frisky title a test drive — — and then went straight to the idea junkyard and abandoned this brain-storm.
• • Overheard in Hollywood • •
• • Journalist Sondra Lowell wrote the article "Memories of Mae: Academy Tribute" and it was published in the Los Angeles Times on Thursday, 21 May 1981, six months after Mae's funeral.
• • In Her Own Words • •
• • Mae West said: “I wrote the story myself. It's about a girl who lost her reputation and never missed it.”
• • Mae West said: "Years ago there was a  Mae West playing burlesque In the East, and only a few years back I had trouble stopping a burlesque queen In Pittsburgh from using my  name."
• • Quote, Unquote • •
• • An article about the cinema mentioned Mae West.
• • Film Daily wrote: About $15,000 in presents was passed around by Mae West to those who helped in the retakes of her new Paramount picture, "Belle of the Nineties."  . . .

• • Thank you for reading, sending questions, and posting comments during these past fourteen years. Not long ago, we entertained 3,497 visitors. And we reached a milestone recently when we completed 4,200 blog posts. Wow!  
• • By the Numbers • •
• • The Mae West Blog was started fourteen years ago in July 2004. You are reading the 4217th blog post. Unlike many blogs, which draw upon reprinted content from a newspaper or a magazine and/ or summaries, links, or photos, the mainstay of this blog is its fresh material focused on the life and career of Mae West, herself an American original.
